don't slash medicare we're going to end up like greece. well, that's just stupid. >> stephanie: yeah. but you know this is what i have been talking about all morning. and i couldn't stop playing that clip for you from david gregory. sunday after the election should the president bring in mitt romney to negotiate the fiscal cliff. maybe the fact that grover norquist has a seat at the table, as if he won this election. >> i can see putting him in there, but the party is at least pretending to run away from him right now. >> stephanie: right. >> for all of the people who are running away from him, i think we should notice we are essentially arguing to bring the top marginal rate back up into the lower 30s. >> stephanie: exactly. i love the way you state. you say i have said it more than once it's not the president's job to tame john boner's tax reform um. he has no obligation to water these down just to get a deal down just for the sake of appearances. i mean that's exactly it. the president has more leverage than he obviously had last summer. >> and -- and -- if boehn
and adjustments to medicare, social security and other mandatory programs. the white house says it does not pass the test of balance and sticks the middle class with the bill. nancy pelosi will file the discharge position that we talked about yesterday, and that would force a vote for the bush tax cuts. the new "washington post" pugh research poll say 58% of those asked say it would be the republicans fault if we go over the fiscal cliff. and that shows all this back and forth isn't doing house gop any good. we're back after the break. alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. rich, chewy caramel rolled up in smooth milk chocolate. don't fo
're willing to do that. so how much, you want to cut medicare? you want to cut social security? john, admit it, you want to cut social security. no, no i want the president to say that. why would he say that? that's not his position. that's your position. you have not made no offer, no offer. i don't want you to get confused because the rest of tv will say he said-she said. no the republicans have made no offer, none. they're full of it. now the white house is fighting back. this is the thing that is flabbergasting. the white house communication director said, the president is not going to negotiate with himself. he has laid out his position, and the republicans have to come to the table. my reaction to that was-- >> flabbergasted. >> cenk: what? the white house not negotiating with itself? that's fantastic. do you remember what president obama said in 2010 because he had these negotiations with the republicans over the stimulus package. he said, this is the lesson he learned. now in retrospect i could have told barack obama in 2009 if you had a third of the package as tax cuts then republican
